perspectives. many of us believe we have different interests. it is also quite clear that neither russia nor the united states quite controls the situation. we have a number of countries in the region who dare to have their own interests and act on the basis of what they believe are their interests. those in moscow and washington are not just acting. there also reacting. they're not just creating situations. they are managing situations. it is difficult. it is controversial. so is likely to become more do after this weekend's events in moscow. i am talking about president putin deciding he will be coming back to power. those of us who have watched the remarkable united russian congress and those of us who were back in moscow during the days of communism felt it was all very well orchestrated. it looked quite impressive. during the, the minister -- during the communist party congresses, they would at least proceed with a vote and elect their candidates. this time, i have to give them credit, they were quite efficient and did not want to waste any time. prime minister putin came to the podium
